It sounds like he's got a copy of the local KQED 9 TV broadcast from the set list provided here. The KFOG FM stereo simulcast was on a 2 second delay; so those copies are out of synch. A good copy of the opener thru Ship of Fools would go nice with the commercial "So Far" release...

The secoond set was broadcast live on the local PBS station if I remember right. No frigging interruptions for almost 2 hours. The entire show was on KFOG in San Francisco too...

I worked this show, a friend in New York kept hounding me for my staff jacket......the bobs (Franky's favorite)' the dirty dozen brass band play'd as well......staff shirt from this show were going for $75. at wolfgang's vault.

not as fun as oakland auditorium, but the bay was always a good time during the holidays.........

if 2 buys the shirt we can eat peking duck for dinner, just like before the show.

that's the one where you can feel Jer's cotton mouth during Ship of Fools - then they show him entering the backstage area after break asking for just some "good old american water" - ignoring a table full of cocktails etc.. and heading for a sink.

Am I remembering that correctly or was it part of my NYE show that night?
